The Defiant Agents

by Andre Norton

I looked into many Norton novels in the past but never got past page five before abandoning the efforts due to boredom. This time I promised myself to finish one of them, if only to determine why others enjoyed her work.

No hopeógot to about page twelve before quitting. She writes as you would expect a librarian to do, with some of the slowest openings in the explored portion of the galaxy.

Delayed Action

by Charles V. De Vet

Technical gimmick type of story but a pretty good one. Kept my interest, at least.

Collectivum

by Mike Lewis

Interesting concept but would work better as novel or novella than short story.

Collector's Item

by Evelyn E. Smith

Cute, well-written story about collecting specimens of Venusian wildlife. I was disappointed that the cat didn't end as more of a hero.
